How We Help Startups

The Greenhouse Accelerator provides entrepreneurs a rich support system over a period of three years — management support through accompagneurs, financial support through seed loans, and educational and peer support through interactive workshops.

We are a non-profit and provide our help for free.  From our entrepreneurs we expect reciprocity:  once your company is on a solid platform to continue its growth, give back yourself – help a starting entrepreneur with your own advice and support the Greenhouse financially.

The Greenhouse seeks applicants whose products or services positively impact natural resource use, including:

  • Early-stage green business/technology startups
  • Small businesses in green sectors struggling to scale up
  • Companies needing assistance to define, implement or scale internal sustainability measures


Annual Report

The Atlanta based Greenhouse Accelerator program has helped Consensus Energy develop necessary business structures, cultivated business opportunities and coordinated alliances in the energy efficiency space over the past year. Their guidance has been very helpful in getting Consensus Energy off the ground and cash-flowing in a very competitive and challenging business environment. We are in a much stronger position today thanks in part to the great support of the Greenhouse Accelerator Program.
